    Give it a little while and see what it may have done for your squat.

    I wish I had a levis endorsement.

    I guess now we need to have a 600 club. That one might take a bit longer to reach though.

    The bar that was used at the meet was the same bar that Bolton used to pull 1003 lbs.

    Congrats on joining the club buddy, I'd be down for a 600lb club, but I'm looking to hit that fairly soon :D.

    Great work guys. I'm still stuck at my little 445... Hoping to try 465 before the end of the year. Good luck on the road to 600! :tucool:

    Wow! Just read most of this, very impressive strength gains. The first part of my transformation is almost over (cut pretty hard as you can see in my sig). I'm starting my bulking program in 2 weeks - can't make 500 for 2007 - anyone in for 2008? i have a LOOOONG way to go.

    Being 6'1" , 165lbs at ~8%BF you can guess my lean mass was pretty non-existant. I'm doing 4x12 at 190, worked up from 110 in August - I'd guess my max is under 300 - but you gotta have goals.. :)

    Take your time, attack consistently, and you will achieve it. Don't let anyone tell you different.

    That's so neat. :spaz: You'd think they would put it in some kind of museum or something.
    Yup. Definitely something I want to do in the next year. :) I seem to have caught the deadlift bug.

    It's possible. My brother pulled 495# in competition at 148# body weight.

    Having reached the 355 mark, I've got my eye on 500 before the year's out! With the way that 355 felt last night, I think I could've done 365. I've also been infected with the deadlift bug!
